Failure of Engineer Garin (Krakh inzhenera Garina) is a Soviet 1973 science fiction mini series, the second screen adaptation of the novel "Giperboloid inzhenera Garina" by Aleksey Tolstoy (also released in English as "The Garin Death Ray"). Unlike the 1965 B&W movie that was very close to original text, this version is very loosely based on the novel.

The following weapons were used in the film Failure of Engineer Garin (Krakh inzhenera Garina):


Nagant M1895

Rolling's hired gun Tyklinsky (Vladimir Tatosov) carries a Nagant M1895 revolver of anachronistic post-1930 version. In the final scene one of Shefer's henchmen is armed with a Nagant.
